7 As a result, we were consoled in you, brothers, in the midst of all our difficulties and tribulations, through your faith.
8 For we now live so that you may stand firm in the Lord.
9 For what thanks would we be able to repay to God because of you, for all the joy with which we rejoice over you before our God?
10 For night and day, ever more abundantly, we are praying that we may see your face, and that we may complete those things that are lacking in your faith.
11 But may God our Father himself, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way to you.
